The New Way That Clients Want You To Sell – And How You Can Nail It!
New clients don’t want to be sold the way they used to anymore. Right?
As consultants, we can’t be perceived as chasing people, right? We’re giving them advice. And we’re chasing them for the work, what does that do for our perception? It lowers it, right?

And also, there’s this idea that if we have more contacts with people, you know the numbers game concept? Right?
